Umno state committees want party elections postponed to 2009

By SIM LEOI LEOI

PUTRAJAYA: All state liaison committees who have met with Prime Minister Datuk Seri Abdullah Ahmad Badawi over the weekend have unanimously agreed to call for the postponement of party elections until next year.

Umno information chief Tan Sri Muhammad Muhammad Taib said all the state liaison committees were unanimous in their proposal.

"They asked for party elections to be held next year because the period to postpone party polls will only run out by June 2009.

"So, there is still time. They feel that if elections are held now, it could prove disastrous for the party.

"However, the final decision will still have to be made by the Supreme Council, which will meet on Thursday," he told reporters Tuesday after accepting his duties at the Rural and Regional Development Ministry here.

Many of the state liaison committees, added Muhammad, also thought that efforts should be focused on reviving the party at the moment.

"However, the Umno general assembly will go on as planned this August," he said.

Muhammad, who is also the Selangor Umno liaison chief and the new Rural and Regional Development Minister, said Abdullah was also expected to go to Sabah soon to obtain the opinions of the state committees there.

"He wants to listen to their views himself," he said.
